Subject: Good movie
An entertaining blend of science fiction and comedy. There is also no annoying mismatched mood music to contradict the action in the film. I hate it when some dufus slaps "old" music to "old" films simply because they're both "old" without even trying to match what's going on in the film. One silent Tarzan film -- I forgot the title -- kept recycling what sounded like German beer garden music, and it was playing when the young Tarzan boy discovered that his paretns were both dead. It was STUPID sounding.

"Here Ralph. Here's another restored silent film. Slap some old music on it and give it to the public."

"Okee dokee, Harold. I see this movie is about how an enire family dies of influenza. Let's's music called 'The Charlston'. Old movie, old music." //slap// "Now they're together. Now we shall present this piece of history to the Public!"

I gave this movie 5 stars.
